When you think big, grand gowns in elegant fabrics who do you conjure up? Reem Acra, of course. She uses the most opulent and traditional fabrics and embroidery techniques that spell out bride gone formal with all the trimmings. Reem is most noted for intricate bead work of tiny swarovski crystals and seed pearls. She also is apt at the gold needlework and embroidery on those rich fabrics. These pieces are from her Spring/Summer 2010 collection.
